Previously before coming to W.A i was a Sydney boy and grew up supporting ARL/NRL and have been a Bronco's boy since inception. In the AFL I ddn't really follow it but watched the odd game here and there so i decide to follow Collingwood as my local league side was the Western Suburbs Magpies. Anyway when I came over here I had to make a final choice on who I would passionatley support because league over here is non-existant to be honest so I decide to support West Coast Eagles as my new full time footy team. It was either them or the Freemantle Dockers but i hadn't had the labotomy at the time so that ruled me out
I have followed Richmond for years, but they have been no good for a long time. I was a member when I lived in Melbourne and went to all the games. They are starting to rebuild so hopefully we can improve in next 2 years. I don't have high expectations of them anymore.
I have to say it is different to see these sport/hobby related message boards, but it is not a bad thing as the regular members can find out more about each other.
I thought I might post all AFL results here just for those who can't be stuffed going anywhere else:
NAB CUP ROUND 1 - WEEK 1
West Coast 1.16.12 (117) Essendon 0.12.10 (82) at Subiaco Oval, Perth
Adelaide 1.8.10 (67) Port Adelaide 2.15.15 (123) at AAMI Stadium, Adelaide
Hawthorn 3.16.12 (135) Richmond 0.9.8 (62) at MCG, Melbourne
Western Bulldogs 1.5.14 (53) Brisbane 1.5.6 (45) at Manuka Oval, Canberra
St Kilda vs Collingwood at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne Sydney vs Carlton at Blacktown Olympic Park, Blacktown Geelong vs North Melb. at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne Fremantle vs Melbourne at Subiaco Oval, Perth
Also people, I think an AFL tipping comp would be awesome! I would be happy to manage it, but let me know here if you would like to take part. If enough people are interested, I think we should give it a go.
I don't like the man, but he is certainly just what the Dogs needed - a strong forward. And as it turns out, I may have been wrong about Fevola being a better choice, at the moment Hall looks like a much better pickup. Hope he retains his sanity, and then the Dogs have a great chance for the whole year.
It'll be close. After last year's season I was predicting St. Kilda to take it out, but with the addition of Barry Hall, the Dogs will prove to be a big force. I do think they'll be the two to beat, but surely it'd be too much of a fairytale to have them both in the grand final. It'd be awesome though.
I will probably edit this before the season starts (but not after) but here is my ladder prediction:
1. Western Bulldogs 2. St. Kilda 3. Geelong 4. Adelaide 5. Brisbane 6. Collingwood 7. Essendon 8. West Coast 9. Hawthorn 10. Port Adelaide 11. Carlton 12. Sydney 13. North Melbourne 14. Fremantle 15. Melbourne 16. Richmond
7-11 I find particularly close and any of those could make or miss the finals. Sydney and North will probably do better than I've guessed as well, but I hate them so it was just easier to predict them lower than try to force them upwards in that 7-11 group.
I don't follow AFL all that closely, but I'll put in these predictions to add to the mix: 1) Western Bulldogs 2) St Kilda 3) Geelong 4) Hawthorn 5) Collingwood 6) Port Adelaide 7) Brisbane 8) Carlton 9) Adelaide 10) Richmond 11) Essendon 12) West Coast 13) Fremantle 14) Sydney 15) Melbourne 16) North Melbourne
I reckon Saints may not do as well this year with the baggage from losing last year. Also think if the Dogs don't get up that our window has closed and back to drafting and getting young kids in the list.
1) Western Bulldogs 2) Geelong 3) Collingwood 4) Carlton 5) Port Adelaide 6) Hawthorn 7) Adelaide 8) St Kilda 9) Brisbane 10) Essendon 11) Fremantle 12) Richmond 13) Nth Melbourne 14) Sydney 15) West Coast 16) Melbourne
Richmond 9.10 (64) vs Carlton 18.12 (120) at MCG Geelong 19.11 (125) vs Essendon 13.16 (94) at MCG Melbourne 8.13 (61) vs Hawthorn 17.15 (117) at MCG Brisbane 16.18 (114) vs West Coast 12.10 (82) at G Sydney 13.10 (88) vs St Kilda 15.6 (96) at ANZ Port Adelaide 13.18 (96) vs North Melb 12.10 (82) at AAMI Fremantle 17.16 (118) vs Adelaide 9.8 (62) at SUBI W.Bulldogs 13.15 (93) vs Collingwood 19.15 (129) at Etihad
